Preptober – NaNoWrimo Prep

October 24 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

Join us on Saturday October 24 – 10AM to 1PM for Nanowrimo Prep. Want to get ready for writing your novel in November with National Novel Writing Month?

We’ll workshop all the things we need to think about for our novel. (Plus, if you’re working on something nontraditional like a nonfiction, or editing an existing novel, we can talk about that too.)

We’ll look at

-story ideas,

-building character,

-building plot,

-world building,

-organizing information and

-scheduling our writing.

Sign up! Then look for more information in your email box. You’ll see something about 24 hours before the event – Zoom link and all.

This free event is sponsored by Plot Duckies. We empower women of all ages through great role models in stories.
